One Perfect Pitch. How to sell your idea, your product, your business and yourself. Marie Perruchet.

Silicon Valley

One Perfect Pitch. How to sell your idea, your product, your business and yourself. Marie Perruchet. 2016. ISBN  9780071837590. The author was a french journalist who ended up in Silicon Valley helping entrepreneurs at 500 Startups make better pitches. She knew that the key to success was to create stories that did the job, quickly and clearly. ( Can you see why I like to read books by journalists?) After years of this  she created her company , OnePerfectPitch and wrote this book.  It is a one stop read for how to tell the story you need to tell to an audience that is likely attention deficit.  I found it immediately useful and it continued that utility all through the book.  Good compelling read that is easy to digest and use. If you speak to more than a  few people in your life, you need this book.

Power Up Your Sales.  Generate leads for high end sales through public speaking. Kathleen Gage. 2017. An interesting little book about how one woman developed her speaking skills ( Thanks Tony Robbins) and built a career from it.  The tactics and tips she speaks about are all valid and proven. If you are self employed or part of a small business, you can do much worse than being able to speak and share with groups.  IN our consultancies early days we were always speaking to different groups through the selling season and we still do.  Quite easy to read and get good value from this book.  Salespeople need to be able to do this at a high quality level.
